Next is the end of the first set from the first night of a two night at the Kiel Auditorium in St. Louis, where we have Don't Ease Me In ; Black Throated Wind ; Tennessee Jed ; The Race Is On ; Row Jimmy ; El Paso ; Eyes Of The World > China Doll ; Around And Around, including that terrific first set Eyes.
Lastly this week is the entire first set from Halloween 1991 in Oakland, the fourth show of a four night run that was also a de facto farewell to, and celebration of, Bill Graham, who had passed away just days before this run of shows began: Help On The Way > Slipknot! > Franklin's Tower ; Little Red Rooster ; Loser ; Just Like Tom Thumb's Blues ; Let It Grow.
Be sure to join us here next week for more great music from the vault.
